Installation

Create 3D objects on the screen, and they will be there when you look at them using your camera. Strange to explain, but cool to watch.

PowerQuick Personal Ascender

Climb stuff quickly! 1.5 ft per second using a harnass up a rope. For military and commercial uses…

Waterfall monitor

The site is in German, but it’s very damn cool – I want this in my foyer!

DIY Endoscope

Make your own endoscope for $800,- using a lens, webcam, PC and scope (it’s the scope that costs $800). 2 years of research! I want to look in my body! Who can find the HOWTO?

Morphing wings

Wingwarping to the extreme – current wings use leading and trailing edge slats to change their shape in order to create more lift at different angles of attack (angles of aircraft and thus wing pitch into the airflow). This usually creates 3 seperate surfaces for control, but if you look at the way birds reshape […]

Track aircraft from your PC

Using the SBS-1 module from Kinetic Avionic Products Limited, you can track all aircraft in their radar coverage on your PC, if they’re Mode-S/ADS-B equipped. How long will this stay legal? 🙂

In Car Computing Systems

With pictures how to do it – stream broadband TV, mp3s etc etc etc. Looks great!

Sliding Doors

Well, you could have the whole door open left and right… or you could do this: The door is segmented into multiple strips and opens minimally according to the shape of the individual, animal or object that has to pass through Good stuff!

Plane caught getting fried

This imagery is shown at normal and slowed speed on the page – pretty impressive…

Never see a red light again

The MIRT, or Mobile InfraRed Transmitter for Emergency Vehicles (Which is MIRToEV really, but oh well) is a traffic signal pre-emption transmitter. These have today been outlawed in the UK, making me wonder, will it work in the rest of mainland Europe? If so, I want one, and if so, what frequency does it broadcast […]

Climate warning as Siberia melts

THE world’s largest frozen peat bog is melting. An area stretching for a million square kilometres across the permafrost of western Siberia is turning into a mass of shallow lakes as the ground melts, according to Russian researchers just back from the region. The sudden melting of a bog the size of France and Germany […]

People who suck with computers are just jinxed

Bad vibes man, bad vibes! Dude, I’ve been telling all and sundry this for years, but now apparently they have some science to back it up (even if no-one believes them still!)

Little big ships or lots of little ones?

It’s an argument that’s been raging in every navy of the world for centuries at least, and here is another new contender for the lots of little ships argument – it looks cool, but didn’t they learn anything from the destroyers in WWII?!

Keyboards

Well, I was going to do this thing on the fabulous Fingerworks TouchStream vs the new thing I found, but it’s turned into an obituary for Fingerworks – they must have priced themselves out of the market 🙁 Important note! FingerWorks has ceased operations as a business. Always wanted one of those, but can’t even […]

Film inspired reality!

What was that film where the guy invents a spray that freezes and dissappears dog poo? Well, these guys have a spray that does something scarily like it… Garrick Hamm, Creative Director, Williams Murray Hamm and D&AD Education Chairman adds, “I always hope to come away from student judging with the names of a couple […]

Giant Spaghetti Monster

OPEN LETTER TO KANSAS SCHOOL BOARD Let us remember that there are multiple theories of Intelligent Design. I and many others around the world are of the strong belief that the universe was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster. It was He who created all that we see and all that we feel. We feel […]

Bird Strike Video

A military jet ingests a bird, tries to recover, doesn’t make it – all from the cockpit cam.
